The National Basketball Retired Players Association (NBRPA) is proud to announce its participation as an exhibitor at the 2016 Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) Convention. Held from April 1st-5th in conjunction with the NCAA Women’s Final Four, the WBCA Convention is the perfect mixture of education, networking, career development and much more for those in women’s basketball.

“The WBCA Convention is a signature event in the basketball community and I am excited and honored that the NBRPA is a part of this great convention,” said NBRPA President & CEO Arnie D. Fielkow. “As we work to build our WNBA membership and develop female-oriented programming, the WBCA convention gives us a great platform to spread our mission of assisting former players in life after basketball and giving back to the community through the sport.”

Basketball Hall of Famer Nancy Lieberman, who is a officer on the NBRPA’s Board of Directors and current Sacramento Kings Assistant Coach, echoed Fielkow’s sentiments saying, “Every former WNBA player at the Final Four needs to visit the NBRPA at the convention to learn about all the incredible opportunities, resources and benefits available to them and their families through the organization.”
